    More people die from gang shootings than car accidents on Highway 9? Do you just shit facts like this all day?

    To be fair, Highway 9 is rife with gangs.

    More white women living in the suburban parts of Oakland get shot up by gang members than gang members themselves.

    I meant me personally driving on 9, vs getting shot in Oakland. Highway 9 is practically my backyard, I know all the dangerous twists and turns like the back of my hand. I'm not sure how many people died on Highway 9 last year, but it certainly was less than the 94 homicides in Oakland in 2010.

    No one was estimating the probability of you accidentally driving off of Highway 9. I was instructing you to personally drive off it to save everyone from having to further endure your existence. BANG BANG

    No doubt. It sounded like he was saying gangs caused more deaths than car accidents on the highway, which is what I was doubting.

    I'm wearing headphones on the 202 today as a sign of solidarity with John. And deaf people. Or something.

    The last page and a half goes to show you how easily a shitstorm can brew.

    Anyways, stopped by the local Fry's Electronics in Canoga today. They had the Dre Beats for display. Pretty disappointed. Bass slightly exaggerated (Dre). Soundstage not all there. Not very impressed with the sound but i do love the design. Pretty slick. Only thing that kills it is that they require two AAA batteries.

    Bought these on Amazon last night. Due to arrive tomorrow.

    I don't think I've ever tried out wireless headphones before. No difference in sound quality vs wired headphones right?

    These are good suggestions guys, thanks. I should have specified I'm looking for in-ear earbuds I'm using for running - but a lot of these seem to fit the bill. Thanks for being ever helpful.

    Also, I don't think deaf people should be allowed to have earbuds.

    I have a pair of Klipsch S5s I use for workouts. They have a nice big control switch that's designed to be easy to manipulate while running. At first I didnt' like them (I was used to my Shures) but once I figured out how to get them seated right i've been pretty satisfied with them.

    For earbuds I have a pair of the Klipsch Image S4's. Very good quality, clear and precise sound at both ends of the spectrum and good noise isolation, for $50 on amazon.


    More of a general statement to the thread rather than an earbud recommendation, well long story short, I was also able to get my hands on a brand new pair of Bose Quiet Comfort 15's for $99. Considering those sell brand new about $300 on amazon, I had to do it. I'm sure there are other ways and brands to spend $300, but these sound great. And the noise cancellation is very very good on an airplane/train/bus. I put more emphasis on bass than midrange and highs, and these don't disappoint. The only negatives, which are very minor and wouldn't sway me from buying these again, is the price, and the fact that you have to have batteries in them to work. They also have a rock-solid one year warranty, no questions asked. If you wanted, you could buy a pair, and after 11 months, call them and tell them they don't sound quite right, and they'll ship you a new pair no questions asked (after you send your "defective" pair back). They won't check the pair that you sent or anything. And your warranty starts over, another full year of coverage. Bose, at least in my experience, really values their customer service.

    I don't think it's safe to wear those while operating an airplane/train/bus.

    I never promise that. You ever hear the awesome story that starts off "So before we left we made sure to be safe and careful"? I don't. That story isn't even worth telling.
